How to Make a Cannabis Bath Bomb

One of the self-care beauty trends we are loving right now is a proper bath. Throughout the years, people have lost the art of a true luxurious bath, but we are thrilled that this generation is reviving it. Baths are a great way to relax after a hard day’s work, and they are totally customizable! Bath pillows, salts, activities, and scents are all completely up to the bather. For example, if you’re a reader, the bath is a fantastic place to catch up on a few chapters. If you’re a thinker, closing your eyes and feeling the warm water swirl around you is the perfect path to great meditation.

An addition to a bath that can have awesome health benefits as well as relaxing properties is Cannabis! In combination with Epsom salts and other ingredients, cannabis can help reduce soreness, relax muscles, and soothe the skin. Both bath salts and bath bombs work equally well, but you can’t beat the fun fizzing the bomb provides, so here’s a simple formula to follow if you want to create your own cannabis bath bomb!

First, you will need to gather your ingredients. You will need bath bomb molds or some way to keep the mixture in place, Epsom salts, corn starch, baking soda, citric acid, and Cannabis infused coconut oil which you can find online. Optionally, you can also add any essential oils of your choice and/or food coloring.

Mix these ingredients in a bowl until they form a damp, powdery mixture. This means equal parts Epsom salt, citric acid, cornstarch, and baking soda. Your main moisture will come from the Cannabis infused coconut oil. Not only will this ingredient moisturize the skin, it will also act as a great delivery method for the cannabis. Add this slowly as needed to the dry ingredients until you get the desired consistency. Then add your optional ingredients to your bath bomb mix as you so choose! Lavender is a great relaxing scent, peppermint will wake you up, and tea tree oil is great for the skin.

A quick note of caution with the food coloring, though! A little bit goes a long way. Use too much, and you may end up looking like a smurf! Start with one drop and use as little as humanly possible.

Once your mixture is complete, pack it tightly into your molds! You can get some fairly cheap ones on Amazon, but if you’re in a bind, wrap enough bath bomb mixture to fill your hand in plastic wrap, and then twist the top until it’s very tight. Leave your bath bombs to set for a day, and then enjoy whenever you please.

Baths are a great way to relax and refresh, so don’t skimp on the details. If you’re going to take a bath, take a real bath. Hopefully, this guide will help you on your way to the perfect Cannabis bath.
